Water

Water, water, water everywher!
Water has no enemies but,
How many of us do have water?
The earth consists of 70% of water and,
Mankind is still thirsty of water;
Ladies and Gentlemen,
How many of us do have enough water?
The rightousness of mankind is still negative,
Many are those who control this water!
On this earth are many without water,
On this earth too are many in darkeness,
How sad it is to see many dying of thirst;
Water has no enemy at all but, mankind has! !
The problem lies in our own hands and,
I do rest my case.

Water is life! ! Thanks for your comment on my poem. Stay blessed always.
A thought provoking poem. I adhered to the lines of this poem to wit: The earth consists of 70 % of water yet mankind is still thirsty of water.
Thirst is a need of water, Hunger is need of food, But anger is a waste of blood. About the water-was superb.thanks for sharing poet.
